See them and the rest of the article after the jump….Here comes the bride, all dressed in . . . Uggs?
The popular Australian footwear company has unveiled a new line for brides looking to satisfy their inner couch potato as they walk down the aisle.
The cozy “I Do” collection includes two ankle boot styles: glitter fabric or Swarovski crystal-covered. There’s also fluffy flip-flops.
Brides-to-be prepping for their big day said Thursday the new creations were just plain Ugg-ly.
“I would judge anyone who would wear them,” said Amy Longpre from Ontario, Canada, who was picking up her gown at David’s Bridal on Sixth Ave.
“They’re not girlie enough.”
The 27-year-old lab technologist plans to wear a pair of flats covered in pretty jewels. There was only one scenario she could envision wearing bridal Uggs: with pajamas.
“It’s a sporty natural look but that day, she’s the lady,” Longpre’s mom, Debbie, chimed in. “We want her to feel elegant. That’s the look we are going for.”
The wedding Uggs are currently only available for purchase online but may be stocked in stores soon, retailers said.
The shiny Uggs, which are covered in white and pink sequins, cost $190 and the jeweled boots go for $225.
The shearling-covered flip-flops sell for $80 and all three products have baby blue soles, in keeping with the tradition that all brides should wear something that color as they tie the knot.
“These, to me, look like high-end room slippers,” said Nao Gamo, 29, from New Haven, who is getting married at The Yale Club in midtown in September.
“I’m wearing heels to my wedding — sparkly high heels.”
Some brides have already opted for Ugg-themed winter weddings with the bride and bridesmaids wearing the sheepskin-lined boots beneath their long flowing gowns to stay warm.
But bridal store staffers said they could not imagine most beautiful brides ruining their tasteful white gowns by throwing a pair of clunky boots on their feet.
“We’ve never been asked for anything like this by a customer,” said Danielle Byrd, a customer service rep at David’s Bridal.
“Maybe if the bride is going from the limo to the church, or the church to the reception, or if her feet are hurting from her heels but, I can’t see anyone walking down the aisle in them.”
